Jesus at the Marriage in Cana

Brooklyn Museum - The Marriage at Cana (Les noces de Cana) - James Tissot - overall

John 2:1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:

2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.

3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.

4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.

5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.

6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.

7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.

8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.

9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.

Tip – New Year’s Resolution – Use a Dictionary

In the Old Testament, God told the children of Israel to possess the land.

In today’s world, the land that must be recaptured from the land of wokeness is vocabulary.

This is the process that the progressive left uses to change vocabulary.

A new term or concept is introduced in a manner of “cute” or “trendy” or “viral video”.

After a while, though quite ridiculous, it becomes a part of mainstream thought, because it goes unchallenged.

The idea that a man can have a baby would be an example.

What kind of thinking is this that defies the laws of biology?

What kind of sloppy thinking is this?

Men regard its nature and cause as divine from ignorance and wonder….

— HippocratesOn the Sacred Disease

What would scientists of prior centuries say about some of the recent, woke, unproven ideas?

After the introduction of a term with an unnatural, unscientific, unproven, untested definition, i.e., a  “woke” definition, those who wish to use the traditional form of the word may begin to self-censor…If I say that, what are the consequences?  Will I lose likes on Facebook And in the case of well known celebrities or politicians, Will the press criticize me for not going with the new form of the word?

Then there is persecution against not only the word, but also against the whole cultural lifestyle from which the original word emerged, and against those who prefer the old cultural lifestyle.

Let’s take some common words:  man, woman, marriage, family.

Have you seen the above process in action?

Whenever you question the use of a word, look up the historical meaning of a word.  Don’t look at the modern day meaning, but the historical meaning.

Historical meanings came about as society moved towards law and order, based in part on a Judeo/Christian influence.

Western society is now is a state of de-evolution.  Vocabulary is de-volving as well.

A New Year’s Tip…use a dictionary to look up original, historical meanings of words.
